Integration - and why you really ought to subscribe to Kim Cameron's Identity Blog

Found this integration poster by Jeff Bohren on Kim Cameron's Identity blog. Kim's blog is very good stuff, in my "A+ Feeds" folder. If you have some ideas what "identity" means and why its interesting, you should without question be subscribed to Kim's blog. Go read, you'll see.

Yay! Time Machine now works on HD's attached to Airport Extreme Base Station!

From MacRumors:
After the release of today's Time Machine and Airport update, several readers report that Time Machine now supports backups to USB drives connected to your Airport Extreme basestation. This configuration essentially reproduces the functionality of Apple's Time Capsule product.

Looks like I can now get off the fence of "should I buy a Time Capsule, or can I get Airport Extreme and buy a third party (bigger) external hard drive?"

I want to do the latter, since I'll get:
- More space for my money
- Failure independence - if the wireless function fails, at least I won't lose the storage function. (In my experience, consumer wireless routers have a much shorter MTBF than consumer hard drives.)

So, looks like I get to play with Subversion a bit.

I've started reading up on it a bit.

Set up a project on Google Code since that gives me a pre-set-up Subversion repository.

Collected a few subversion bookmarks on If you know Subversion, take a look; am I missing some really good ones?

Installed Subversion and SvnX on my Mac.
